Our first visit to Southwold and knew nothing about Under the Pier, which was a delightful, totally unexpected, unique, surprise. Despite a couple of none functioning machines have still chosen to give it 5 stars. Left us with a definite smile on our faces.

I've visited this before and count myself as a huge Hunkin fan. But so many of the machines are broken or only partially working it's a big disappointment. Blank screens, broken headsets and lots of out if order notices. The water clock seems stuck and...More

As a part of the Southwold Pier this is a nice example of entertainment. A visit to Southwold isn’t complete without going to the pier!

Oh thank you. I laughed long and hard. I can honestly say it was the most fun ever. I wished you had even more. Good old fashioned fun for all. I have some great video of us all in stitches. Hahaha...

Never seen machines like these before! They were incredible and brilliant fun. Great for all ages - spent a good couple of hours testing them all out and having a good laugh. If you want to do something new and different - definitely go here!

A wonderful, crazy and witty arcade of home made machines, we always visit when in Southwold, it wouldn’t be a day at the seaside without it! Take plenty of pound coins and 20p pieces, you’ll want to try them all...personal favourite...the bathyscape...watch as you see...More

The Pier is a great seaside attraction of how you would expect a Pier to be. Somewhat quirky. It's one of a declining number of Piers around the coast. This one has been rebuilt. It houses a Restaurant, the under the pier show, shopping and...More

A collection of adapted arcade machines and others built from scratch it seems with topical satirical themes, or just crazy concepts. Very entertaining. Just don't shut a toddler in the bathe scope as did a dopey toff couple. The kids screamed the place down and...More

I don't think dogs are restricted on any part of the Pier, not even the restaurant. As long as they are well behaved of course.
